Roughly: the approximate time, in words

By Iain Anderson

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.

Description

"Roughly" is a Watch complication for the Modular and many other watch faces that tells you the approximate time, in words. Times are given to the nearest five minutes: "it's about ten to six", "it's about quarter past three", or "it's about five o'clock". Accurate but imprecise, it's a "fuzzy clock".

Roughly is most useful for those with dyscalculia (numeric dyslexia) or for the lazy. When you're asked what the time is, you can just read it out.

Roughly can be shown in the large central area of the Modular watch face, and in a single line of text on many other watch faces, including Activity Analog, Utility, Motion, Photo, Mickey or Minnie. Please note that on the single line complication, the hour may be shown as a digit if there is insufficient space for a word. For example, "TWENTY FIVE PAST 12" may be shown rather than "TWENTY FIVE PAST TWELVE". This is more common on the smaller 38mm Watch, and if it's an issue for you, please use the Modular face instead.


## Instructions

The iPhone app only displays an image. To load Roughly, install the iPhone app, then wait for it to install on your paired Apple Watch, or install it manually through the Watch app on your iPhone.

Force Touch (hard press) on the watch face to change it, then switch to the Modular face, or a face which supports a single line of text. Press Customize, then activate the Middle complication on Modular or the Bottom or Below Time complication on another face. Choose Roughly from the list there, then press the digital crown twice to return to the watch face.

On your iPhone, you can also use the Watch app to install Roughly, and to choose a language. After changing languages, tap on the complication to update it.


## Time Travel

Roughly supports the Time Travel feature for times within the next several hours.

What's New in Version 1.3

Language choice via preferences in the Watch app on iPhone.
Italian support.
Bug fixes for non-English languages in watchOS 3.

Please note: this version requires watchOS 3, and works on many more watch faces. Any faces with a wide single line of text at the bottom or top are compatible.
